Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History
Deadline: April 12
The Ella Sharp Museum of Art & History is pleased to issue a call for artists for our annual Ella Sharp Art & Wine Festival. Now in its seventh year, the festival has become an eagerly anticipated event which features the best of local Michigan art, wine, and music.
The Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History will be teaming up with the Southeast Michigan Pioneer Wine Trail to present the 7th annual Ella Sharp Art & Wine Festival. New to this year's event we will include beer tasting with a number of Michigan breweries.
The Festival will take place on the grounds of the Ella Sharp Museum within the courtyard of the museum's historic Hillside Farm Lane and surrounding grounds. There is no entrance fee to the event itself for guests wishing to peruse artists' booths and take in the live entertainment.
The goal of the Ella Sharp Art & Wine Festival is to showcase the many talented artists, musicians, wineries, Michigan breweries and local businesses available here in Michigan and to connect them with an appreciative audience. In addition to artist booths, the Festival will offer
• food from local vendors
• performances from a variety of local professional musicians
• live art demonstrations
• a children's interactive art area
All proceeds from the festival will benefit the museum and our educational department which runs such programs as Pioneer Living and Arts Go to School.
The Ella Sharp Museum is situated in a beautiful 530 acre city park and includes five galleries, historical buildings, a museum, fine restaurant and a full season of events that are popular throughout the region. I live nearby, it is a beautiful place that presents fine cultural events to this community.
